23 October 1921 diary of Dr John Stewart Muir (1845-1938) of Selkirk

A little snow left on the tennis green soon disappeared but it was lying white on the hills. The day was fine + crisp with a N.E. wind. I cycled saw some cases walking + cycled to Hospital, Faldonside, Muthag Street + Forest Road. Did some writing in afternoon + went to evening service (Harvest Thanksgiving). Jack, Nancy + Mrs Mack1 came to supper. The chrysanthemums which were looking their best have been sadly battered by the snow.
